...or shotgun start...or rocket launcher start...
I wrote a mod for ZDoom that makes pistol starting a level easier (No more typing "idclev##"!). You can either pistol start when respawning or at the start of a new level.
You can also decide what guns and how much ammo and health do you start with using a menu found under "Options". You can even ban certain weapons to create your own "Tyson mode". There's also a random map picker.
This mod is designed for hardcore players who want to make the game harder for themselves, but you can also make the game easier if you want to.
The following setup gives you a chainsaw, a shotgun and 20 shells but leaves you at 75 health every time you reset.
NOTE: You have to disable autosaving for this to work correctly (type "disableautosave 1" in the console).
If you find any bugs, make sure to tell me.
Also, this is my first mod I have released so... yeah.
